Evaluation for this subject is carried out through the activities indicated. The final grade is obtained as the sum of the grades corresponding to the percentages assigned to each language.

To pass this subject, students must have obtained at least a 5 in each of the languages. Failure to reach this grade will result in a Fail for the subject. Additionally, all the evaluable activities in each one of the languages must also be passed, that is, with a minimum grade of 5.

Class attendance is obligatory: students must attend a minimum of 80% of the classes for each language; failure to do so will in the grade of “Not Evaluable”. Presenting a certificate or other document that justifies non-attendance cannot be used to excuse attendance requirements; they simply serve to explain students’ absence.

In general, the main criteria applied in grading each of the languages are: 1) rigour in presenting and handling information, and conceptual accuracy; 2) clarity and coherence of expression (spoken and written), and 3) language suitability and correctness. In Spanish and catalan, each orthographic, lexical and syntactic error will be penalised by the reduction of 0.25 marks with respect to the final grade for each one of the evaluation activities; the competences relating both to content and written expression will be taken into account when grading the various tests.

Students will be awarded a fail grade if they do not complete all the evaluation activities or if they have failed at least one of these. Furthermore, if the teacher detects flagrant copying either in an examination or in a written assignment, the student or students concerned will be automatically awarded the grade of fail for the entire subject, with no right to re-evaluation. Additionally, the degree coordinator will be duly informed.

Results corresponding to the evaluation activities will be published not less than 7 days and not more than 40 daysafter the activity has been taken or after submission of the related work. Each teacher will inform th

Re-evaluation (recuperation) of those activities that have not been passed (such as exams, practicums or assignments) will be arranged at a time when the teaching staff consider this necessary, ideally once the classes for that language have finished. Re-evaluation is attendance-based and in the format (oral and/or written) that the teacher determines.
